Holy Innocents Need Your Help

Holy Innocents Need Your Help

It is great to see so many people back in church now. But as we come back together many people who used to help out have had to stop because of health issues, or they may not yet be ready to come back to church. We thank them for all their help in the past. During lockdown many activities had stopped but we now need your help to start them up again. We would love to hear from you if you'd like to find out more about joining in with:

Can You Help Your Churches

Your Help Needed

Holy Innocents and St Peter's

Church Cleaning.

Our church wardens have worked very hard to keep our churches clean and tidy during the last 18 months and we are very grateful.  But this should not just fall to them; they do so much to keep our churches and services going. We need a few people who would be willing to clean the church on a rota basis. The more volunteers we have, the less onerous it is on everyone. If you would like to know more, please contact one of our church wardens.

New Beginnings 

When the pandemic first hit us it seemed that life changed overnight. Self-distancing and self-isolation became the norm as we all adapted to a different way of thinking and going about our daily lives. Now some fifteen months later as we slowly emerge from the affects of the pandemic, some more slowly than others, it feels like we have been given a fresh start, a new beginning.
